THREAD:

Okay. Trump n' co want to force in person voting during an effing PANDEMIC. We're 82 days out. The time to start preparing for this sh*t-show NOW. I have no experience coordinating these kinds of things, but I'm betting some of you do (or know someone who is great at it). Please feel free to take these ideas and run with them!

Here's what I think we'll need so far:

Okay, y'all here you go: the official #Trump National Address thread. The address is scheduled to start in about ten minutes. Let's do this thing. Rumor has it the speech is a Kusher/Miller joint effort so gird your girdables, everybody. This could get real REAL bad.

Welcome to today's #Trump #ImpeachmentTrial thread (potentially one of a few)! I've been playing around with tags a little in other tweets this morning but for now, I'm going to stick with the two I've used here. That may change later on, though. Follow/mute at will! Today is going to be procedural stuff. The Senate will have to approve the (completely BS) rules proposed by McConnell. Dems will offer amendments, of course, but since a simple majority rules I don't have a lot of hope any of the amendments will pass. #Trump #ImpeachmentTrial

Okay folks, let's get this party started. Welcome to your #ImpeachmentHearing thread! For your following/muting needs, I'll be tagging these with #ImpeachmentInquiry, #ImpeachmentHearing, and/or #ImpeachingHearings. Unlike the previous #ImpeachmentHearings, this hearing won't include witnesses to #Trump n' Co's shenanigans. Instead, this hearing is about legal and constitutional theory. It's a panel of nerds, folks, and I am HERE FOR IT.

To sum up today’s #Trump bullshittery: dude says he’ll sign the funding bill that just passed Congress AND will declare a (totes bogus btw) national emergency so that he doesn’t have to honor it. Worse, the “conservatives” are all supporting this. Including MITCH MCCONNELL who now suddenly wants to sing about it like it’s free candy.

Aren’t y’all supposed to be AGAINST Federal Government overreach?!

Oh right. Not when you’re the ones doing it.

Jerks.

Oh jeez. I should be threading these #TrumpRally tweets. Okay, that starts now! Here's the thread for your following/muting needs! It's worth noting that this rally crowd is waving a bunch of campaign-made "Build the Wall" and "Finish the Wall" signs. So that's gonna be a thing we'll have to see in the world now.

Okay, y’all: The SOTU is scheduled to start in about 15 minutes. Tags are #SOTU2019 and #Trump for your following/blocking/muting needs!

(Honestly I don’t know how much I’ll be tweeting, I think mostly I’ll just be sitting here swearing.) Oh dear. Mike Pence is going to have to sit next to a woman who is not his wife. Will he be able to last the whole speech? Anybody got the over-under on how long it'll take him to lean so far away from her that he falls out of his chair?

Oh lord. There’s going to be a #SHSanders #WHPressBriefing today. It’s the first one of the year, the first since before the shutdown, and will likely be A Thing.

I’ll be watching & tweeting! Follow/mute at will! Oh hey, looks like the #WHBriefing started relatively on time. I almost missed it! John Bolton said some stuff. Now It's Mnuchin's turn to say some stuff.

#Trump is going to speak in the Rose Garden any minute now. Is he going to lie a bunch about reopening the government? Is he just going to yell "no collusion! witch hunt!" over and over again? Both? Stay tuned! Oh hell, #Trump is going to take questions too. This is going to be a sh*tshow.

Okay y’all, here we go (again). The Senate is voting on #Trump’s bill to reopen the government.

#ShutdownVote Doesn’t look like it’s gonna make it, y’all. It needs 60 votes to pass and we’re already at 46 No votes.

Shocker.

#Trump starts his “major announcement” bragging about performing a swearing in ceremony in the oval office.

PEOPLE ARE NOT PROPS, JACKASS.

#TrumpAnnouncement #Trump: Many mothers give their young daughters birth control for the long journey to America because they know they may be raped or assaulted.

The worst part of this? There’s no way to know whether it’s the birth control or the assaults that offend them.

So #Trump is holding a news conference in about five minutes. I’ll be watching (and probably tweeting). Follow/mute at will! Okay, #Trump has started speaking. He's already slurring. He's already made a joke about "a lot of......MEDIA.".

This does not bode well.
